Stiff neck pain relief medicine

Common Questions and Answers about Stiff neck pain relief medicine


Avatar n tn morning, in that I could actually lift myself to a sitting position but yesterday morning, my husband had to gingerly sit me up as I winced and yelled out in pain. He too had this stiff neck but it didn't seem to linger on like mine has...same with my father and two co-workers. It's very strange and I just keep hoping that one of these mornings I will wake up and be fine. I plan to call my Dr. again tomorrow and while I really like her and trust her, I think she's stumped too.
Avatar f tn Felt burst of pain at left base of neck. Think I blacked out momentarily. Shaking badly. But because the pain was just a burst, I thought I was OK. I contacted my neurosurgeon's office and was sent for a neck x-ray, which showed no fracture. Within 24-36 hours of accident developed severe neck pain in left side of neck; head tilted and turned far right. Feb - Aug: Because the neurosurgeon said I had whiplash, I turned to a D.O.
Avatar f tn In other words I take or eat a substance and usually don't feel any reaction, especially in the case of vitamins, herbs, suppliments, etc. (except for say sleepiness in the case of some medications or pain relief) then I go to sleep. I will then usually wake up around 3AMor when I wake up in the morning a massive stiff neck on my left side along with sinus stuffiness and a sinus headache. The symptoms get worse with each day that I take the substance. I have to take HRT via injections.

1485281 tn?1287951992 Only if there is deep neck space infection then can be associated with neck pain. The neck pain needs to be evaluated with the help of radio imaging to detect any injury to cervical spine, Spinal cord and nerves, and Muscles.
Avatar n tn I get sharp pains mostly near my right temple, sometimes the left, but I get pains in the center and at the base of my neck. (During severe headaches my neck is usually stiff) I haven't ever had nausea, vomiting, blind spot, light or noise sensitivity. I have just started using a daily vitamin supplement because of an eye problem (syptoms similar to glycoma, that might have been caused by Topomax) that I had just recently.
Avatar n tn I have regular epidural injections that provide relief for the stiffness and some pain, take vicodin and flexaril, and motrin for pain, spasm relief, and inflammation but dont want to use more than absolutely necessary so I dont tear up my stomach. I try swimming and while it doesnt have the jolt impact of walking, the very movement of those back muscles can trigger an episode.

621386 tn?1221536083 After 7 months of symptoms similar to yours - I am still not sure if neck problems cause the jaw pain (and facial pain and ear pain lower back pain) or if TMJ disorder causes it all. What is helping: -Wearing a neck brace (inexpensive - get it at the pharmacy) seems to help. Espcially at the end of the day when my neck is tired. -Sleeping on my back. I used to sleep on my stomach - arms and lega akimbo. I think this put a lot of pressure on my neck and jaw.
1139187 tn?1355710247 Hi Brucer, I'm also going for the nerve burning for back pain relief from my pain management doc. I had one diagnostic block done which only lasted about 5 mins (I actually think I was pain free durring that time due to all the happy drugs they had given me), I am scheduled for diagnostic test number 2 on the 3rd of next month. Now per my doc they have to do atleast 2-3 diagnostic blocks before they decide if burning will work. Has your doc done more then one test yet?
Avatar n tn The pain finally diminished, but about a month later it started in my right neck. The pain now runs all the way down my neck and into my shoulder and right chest a bit. It especially hurts if I apply pressure to my pulse(Carotid artery). It feels like inflammed nerves or something. So, I went back to another doctor and he gave the same diagnosis. He said unfortunatley the cause is unknown. Now I am on a stronger anti-inflammatory. I just want to know the cause so it won't come back.
Avatar n tn I too am having problems with ear pain, stiff neck, jaw pain, sinus pain and it all started with a fever and flu like symptoms. I am scheduled for a root canal on Thursday. I will let you know if it has all been related to my teeth. My dentist told me that the root of this tooth is very close to my sinuses. I felt like I had a sinus infection and an ear infection. The fever was two days after I had a crown put in.

358304 tn?1409713092 Right now for instance, the last 3 weeks I've had a pain in the neck. Comes and goes but if I look down and to my right, the pain runs down my neck on the left side and then to the middle of my left shoulder blade. Sometimes I experience headaches from this injury and if I can pop my neck, it normally goes away in a minute if not an instant. Have you ever damaged your neck? Been in a car wreck? Have you seen a doctor about this?
Avatar n tn When I try turning my head to the left, my neck seems very stiff and the pain shifts to the right hand side of my neck. When I try turning my head to the right, my neck still seems stiff and the pain still remains on the righthand side of my neck. When I am looking straight ahead, the pain is in the lefthand side of my neck? When I tuck my chin into my chest, the pain shoots down my spine and stops in the middle of my back between my shoulder blades.
Avatar f tn I'll probably not be able to help, but wanted to let you know that I always have neck pain. Sometimes worse than others, but always there. Mine is in the back of my head, left side of my neck and travels down my arm when it's really bad. I don't know if it is skeletal or MS related. I have also had a cinched up feeling between the base of my neck and shoulders (both sides). No spasms though, just cinched up feeling w/out the horrifying spasms.
Avatar n tn Migraines which I personaly never really experienced up untill 2 years ago and now I get them pretty often,Sleep apnea if you read about it you will understand why,burning pain at the top of your back,chest tightness,jaw pain,neck and back pain and many other symptoms.I have experienced everything they talk about and many other things which could quite probably be linked to this problem and I am quite sure this Fizzy thing could be linked also.
1207048 tn?1282177904 Recently,I was put on zanaflex . I have neck pain, upper back and shoulder pain, cramping in my leg from time to time and buzzing in foot. I take it at night, and haven't really noticed a difference, except for couple of days ago, I had that spasm cramping feeling in my upper back (out of control pain). I had to take a pill right away. luckily , the pain eased up enough for me to have some sort of a productive day.
Avatar n tn I was in a car accident in 2001 in which I had a subluxation of C1-C2. I had servere burning pains in the neck but just minor migraines. I had C1-2 fused in 2003 and for a year after I had no pain or headaches. Life was great. I had a child in 2005 and when she was 6 months old I all of a sudden got completely stiff through out my whole body with a horrile headache and nausea. I went to the ER and they thought it was viral spinal menigitis.
Avatar n tn They said that bedrest is good because the CSF leak can heal itself. I still have headaches if I am up for along time, and a stiff neck. My neuro gave me neurontin to try for the headaches. I don't notice a difference yet though. I was also told to drink caffiene or take excedrin migraine.

Avatar f tn Maybe it is working on a computer for 8-9 hours daily. Whatever the cause, it is there. So along with the tingling, aching, and shoulder pain. I have neck pain and terrible heacaches. When the headaches gets terrible, I get nautious. Maybe it is anxiety related as I know I am absolutely overwhelmed at work. I am raising (4) boys on my own with no financial support and very little physical support of their father.
Avatar n tn I had a long time before i could get into therapy, afyer 4 long months in a hard collar. I never lost the pain in the neck and shooting pain in right side neck and radiating down my arm into hand and fingers tingling. fusion at c5-c6-c7. after a long time in rehab and therapy , i was sent to pain=management, i had several set of 3 injectons that only gave me breif releif. then i had a nerve block at c7 that didn't help but showed the dr. where some of the problem might be.
1415174 tn?1453246703 past the place where the pain is felt.........go to the pain and stop. If after a couple of days, your neck is no better......or worse, see your doctor, especially if the pain worsens when you bend your chin to your chest. I also found that eating several chocolate chip cookies right after this exercise seemed to help. Give it a shot. What do you have to lose? I hope it helps!
290592 tn?1205775276 I am still having neck pain, shoulder pain and an aching type pain down both arms into my hands/fingers. I have been on Topamax for two month because I developed severe migrain type headaches since the surgery. Though I don't get the headaches as severe on the medication I still have a headache daily. I am in worse shape than I was before I had surgery. I just had another MRI my fusion looks great, is almost complete however I now have bulging dics one before and one after the fusion.
Avatar f tn I don't have acid reflux and it wouldn't cause sensitivity on the SKIN of the neck so that nothing can touch it or make the muscles stiff. You were missing the biggest symptoms CLOTHING TOUCHING THE NECK CAUSES IRRITATION.
Avatar n tn I have no pain in the nodes themselves but have developed pain in the neck which seems like a stiff neck, and pain exists with any pressure from straining or lifting, also movement related pain in neck, chest and spine in the same region. No signs of infection at all, but do have extreme fatigue, back pain, some weight loss, among other varied symptoms. My Primary Dr said since no other enlarged nodes were found in other regions, he is not concerned about lymphoma.
11079760 tn?1483389730 I am not preaching anyone ) Again, My left hand stiffness is as it was in the beginning but I am off the neck pain without any medicine. Currently I am on 1 avonex shot a week and couple of Vitamins and Muscle Relaxants ( which I forget taking most of the time). All I wanted to say was you can manage most of the symptoms without medicines. Take Care..
